Students Share Their Cultures at Chancellor’s Tea

In a room decorated in red and green as a symbol of the holiday season, students upstaged the festive decorations with movements, color and inspiration of their own.

Students – both domestic and international – shared their cultures through song, dance and words at the 2013 Chancellor’s Holiday Tea, which recently took place in Pierson Auditorium. They included African American, Indian, Kenyan, Brazilian and Saudi students.

Chancellor Leo E. Morton welcomed faculty and staff to the annual holiday celebration. An addition to this year’s celebration was booths from various locations – India, Kenya, Mexico, Somalia, Bangladesh and Saudi Arabia – providing information about holiday traditions in those lands.

A video overview of the performances was part of the celebration at the Hospital Hill Campus holiday tea, held on Dec. 10 at Diastole Scholars’ Center.
